Harvested Five New Tomatoes!

Today's harvest includes 8 SunSugar, 7 Stupice, 7 Black and Brown Boar, 6 Quedlinburger Fruehe Liebe, 6 Husky Cherry Red(1), 4 Bloody Butcher, 4 Paul Robeson(1), 4 Lime Green Salad, 4 SunGold(1), 4 Matt's Wild Cherry, 3 Black Krim(2), 3 Jaune Coeur de Pigeon, 3 Husky Cherry Red(2), 2 Southern Night (6 ounces) (new), 2 Creme Brulee, 2 Honkin' Big Black Cherry, 2 Jaune Flamme, 2 Black Seaman(2), 2 Green Grape, Paul Robeson(2) (11.5 ounces) (new), Large Pink Anna(1) (new), Green Zebra(2) (new), Garden Peach (new), Kellogg's Breakfast (7.5 ounces) (new), Indian Stripe and Large Pink Anna(2) for a total of 83 tomatoes.

The tomato plants have been watered over yesterday and today. All the container plants got fertilizer and then it was watered in.

Five new tomatoes were harvested today! Paul Robeson(2) looked beautiful. Kellogg's Breakfast looks good but may have been harvested a day too early. That's not much of a problem at all. Southern Night looks interesting. The most unusual is Green Zebra(2). As I've mentioned earlier, it's red so it's not Green Zebra(2). The tomato had what looked like a wormhole (it's obviously a hole but I doubt it's a wormhole) so the tomato will be unusable. Until I can determine what the real tomato is, I'll keep the Green Zebra(2) moniker.

This heat wave (three days over 100 degrees) are pushing the tomatoes toward maturity. The tide is coming in!

Speckled Roman and Sweet 100 have tomatoes growing on them!
